Our Older Adult Ministry is a lively group of individuals ages 50+ who we call GAD-A-BOUTS! And we love to gad-a-bout! Karen Wood keeps this group busy with activities each month. Join us and see what we’re about!


Contact Karen E. Wood for any questions or details on events.

The first Thursday of every month at 12:00 PM at the church is our potluck unless we go on a picnic lunch.

Our next Potluck will be March 1rst. Looking forward to seeing everyone. Bring your favorite covered dish to share. We always have great conversations and it’s fun to catch up with each other. Stephanie Overstreet will be here for chair massages. She is the best and only charges $1 a minute.

April 1rst will be our next Potluck and are privileged to have back Gaye King with her Health Rythms! If you haven’t heard her perform and get others to also, you are missing out. What fun! Don’t forget to bring your favorite dish to share.

Lunch dates are subject to change.
